I love trailers. It feels incredible to get a sneak peek at a shiny, exciting new movie or game. Regardless of whether it is a game, movie, sports event (the NBA finals opening montage, for example), trailers have a special way of getting people excited for an upcoming event. In the past few decades, trailers have played an increasingly important role in the marketing of games and films. Trailer designers and game developers spend weeks choosing what to reveal and…

Breath of the Wild introduced three majestic dragons into the world of Hyrule; Dinraal, Naydra and Farosh. Named for the Golden Goddesses, they traversed the skies and were associated with the Springs of Power, Wisdom and Courage. The three dragons played a part in their individual shrine quests, and had items that were used to upgrade Link’s Champion’s Tunic, but other than that they didn’t play a huge role. Will this change in Breath of the Wild 2 though? The dragons…

The Zelda franchise is famous for many things, be it a hero clad in green, a quest to obtain the Triforce, or an enticing sense of adventure.  There are so many amazing recurring themes in these games and each one stands out for its own reason.  But if there is one predominant recurring element in Zelda games, it’s got to be time travel. When I think of time travel in gaming, my mind goes straight to Ocarina of Time.  I…

Breath of the Wild was very innovative in how Link earned Heart Containers and the new edition of energy. Hearts were traditionally earned by finding Pieces of Heart and creating Heart Containers automatically through your inventory. They were also awarded at the end of major dungeons (which was still a thing in Breath of the Wild). However, in Breath of the Wild Pieces of Heart are gone, and Spirit Orbs essentially took their place. It does take a bit of…

Weapon recreation has been a hobby for tons of fandoms for decades now. Whether paired with cosplay, created to be sold, or simply a means of celebrating a franchise, the feat of actualizing the imaginary should not be overlooked. Any fan creation of such magnitude speaks to the great passion and love harbored for a franchise. For the past two years, reddit user tomvdcr has been utilizing pvc pipe and foam to create weapons from Breath of the Wild and Twilight…

With a new decade upon us and the sequel to Breath of the Wild in development, fans can’t help but question how the future of the Zelda series will compare to the past. Many fans felt that the trailer for Breath of the Wild’s sequel was reminiscent to the darkness encompassed by Majora’s Mask, and a comment from Producer Eiji Aonuma has sparked further interest in a darker story-line for the upcoming title. Although Aonuma didn’t confirm that the game is…

Anticipation for the release of the Breath of the Wild sequel is building with every passing day it seems. It has the potential to be even bigger than the original, which is why fans’ mouths are watering for any new information. The journey in Breath of the Wild was a huge part of what made that game special to a lot of fans, and this new fan-made animation does a great job capturing a lot of the game’s standout moments….

Welcome to a new year and a new decade for Zelda! 2020 will be the the 34th year for the series and I can’t wait to see what is in store for our favorite legend. Since we’re on the subject of new, let’s discuss whether or not we’ll see new Zelda games this year.  We already know that a sequel to Breath of the Wild is in the works, but we don’t have a lot to go on right now….

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s the first Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest of 2020, so let’s start the year off with a bang. Breath of the Wild is jam-packed with opportunities for players to feel like full-blown action heroes. In fact, thanks to its open and free nature, the game ensures that every player will have their own unique hero moments that they can then relay to friends. Most of my epic tales involve explosions, which is why we’re highlighting this…

Music has always played a huge part in the Zelda series, and there are a few titles that actually make a musical instrument integral to the game’s story. A great example of this is Ocarina of Time, which gets its namesake from its featured instrument, which allowed Link to traverse time in order to save Hyrule. Majora’s Mask went a step further by introducing different types of musical instruments. Link utilized different songs on various instruments like the Deku Pipes…
